Hi,

I am using Windows XP on my Intel motherboard.

A week ago it was working fine and I faced no issue.

But just two days ago when I turned it on it showed a lot of error messages after log on.

My whole screen is full of these errors.

I am using a good antivirus. I can’t understand the reasons for this error.

Please suggest a solution as I don’t want to reinstall windows.

Hey,

It seems like your PC is having a hell of a situation. Your Windows XP Registry might be seriously corrupted and need to be repaired immediately. The main cause for Windows registry corruption is Virus activity. I am doubtful about your good antivirus, because at present the protection offered by free antivirus editions are not effective and less powerful compared to paid versions.

So back up your all necessary documents and stuff, do a full format to the hard disk and re–install a fresh copy of Windows. Soon after installation set up Anti Virus software and scan other partitions for viruses. When surfing the internet turn on your web guard in the Antivirus program and don’t visit to poor, untrusted rated sites.

Shanew.

You are having a tough time with the viruses that you have.

And also it seems that your good anti virus might not be working anymore when the viruses attacks your system. It might have been expired when the virus came.

If you have an anti virus running it will not be like this.

Solution 1:

You can try to repair your whole operating system without deleting and files. But I'm pretty sure that it will be the solution for long term basis. Because viruses will still stay in your hard disk.

Solution 2:

You will need to back up your file either by doing the first solution then backup, or plug your hard disk to other computer, or using the safe mode. Then you will need to do what you don't want to do and that is reinstall your operating system. In this case there is nothing you can do about it. Its a virus and it will surely destroy your system.

That is obviously a virus. It seems your computer is infected by an adware, a kind of virus that when your machine gets infected, it will start displaying ads on your computer. Sometimes when you click something, instead of opening the link or the program, it will redirect you to a particular website that is unknown to you. To fix the problem, use a virus removal tool.

Download Sophos Virus Removal Tool and install it. Once installed, start Sophos then wait until the virus signature database gets updated. When updating is complete, click to scan your computer. Scanning takes about an hour or longer depending on the size of the drive and the amount of data.

When a virus is found at the end of the scan, remove the virus and repeat the scan over and over until it no longer detects a virus. You don’t need to uninstall your existing antivirus to use the tool. Sophos works alongside any antivirus program you may have.
